Julie Cavil - Cellar Master, Champagne KRUG
Born in the centre region of France, Julie was raised in an area devoid of viticulture, where a winemaking profession was but a distant possibility. After a brief, but successful, career in communications and advertising, Julie moved to Champagne with her husband in 2002 where she undertook three years of studies to become an oenologist, graduating with a national oenology diploma from the University of Reims, Champagne-Ardenne.
Julie then worked on the vinification of four harvests at Moët & Chandon, after which she joined the House of Krug in 2006 as winemaker and member of the Tasting Committee. In 2017, she became Winemaking Director before becoming Cellar Master of the House in 2020, after 13 harvests at Krug.
